Qi’Ra, the Mysterious Femme Fatale

Qi’Ra is one of the characters I’m most excited for in Solo: A Star Wars Story because she is still such a mystery. She’s one of the most prominent characters in the movie and yet I still feel like I don’t know anything about her except her name…which is awesome. That means that her role in the film is being kept secret for a reason and that’s always encouraging. But what I do know about her is that she isn’t just a pretty face.

She has style, she has grace, but there’s also this subtle hint of deadliness about her as well. She’s just as much of a scoundrel as Han Solo and I think we’re going to discover that at times in this movie.

In Star Wars we’ve never really been introduced to a major female character like this before. There was Leia, the strong-willed princess, Padme, the authoritative Queen/Senator of Naboo, Rey, the powerful but benevolent Jedi, and Jyn Erso, the tenacious rebel who wasn’t going to allow the Empire dictate the future of the galaxy anymore. And now there’s Qi’Ra who I can’t decipher if she’s a hero or one of the characters in this movie that’s going to turn Han into the person who would rather be, well, Solo (with the exception of his best friend, Chewbacca).

But that’s super exciting though. You can’t make a franchise worth watching if all of the characters are practically the same. Thankfully I only have a few days to see just exactly what type of new leading lady she will be.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day. May the Force be with you.
